  1. Supportless and look good even coming off an FDM printer (for me, a stock neptune 2 with no code tweaking).
  2. http://kck.st/3JCo6LG Arbiter miniatures is doing it again, releasing a great supportless (both FDM and resin optimized) undead kickstarter. I have their previous legion of undead, and it was awesome and this looks to be just as great. Link at the top of this post.
  3. Which month/set from epic is that medusa from? I thought I had all of their sets, but I fail to remember that one:( Funny, I don't recall have failures with epic before.
  4. Get a FDM printer (haven't set up my Neptune 2S yet, but if it works even better then my OG 2, it will be awesome), for about $250, you can get a Neptune 2S from Elegoo (sometimes ebay has ones even cheaper, and they are from elegoo.), this way you have resin for mini detail and FDM for stuff like terrain, busts or if the sculptor is good (arbiter miniatures for example) decent mini's. FDM is a bit more of a learning curve then resin, but not by much. I have a bunch of STL's that have great integrated bases (Mia Kay for example), and 3D printers are getting easier to get up and running IMHO. I do know though that after the last convention, there are those who still would rather just buy a mini (I did get a few mini's sold that I printed though, and a bunch of printed terrain) I have sooo many models you would NEVER see hit the light of day, all because of 3D printing (2 different sets of NOT scooby doo, predator, aliens, the alien that pops out near the end of spaceballs:). And it has been a boon for many sculptors who would probably never get a foot in the door at a mainstream company, or be relegated to making whatever the company thinks people want. I have so many great sculptors constantly turning out awesome niche mini's (RN Estudio, papsikels, epic, clay cyanide, hex3d, great grimoire, and village's hope just to name a few).
  5. All I know, if the undead expansion, doesn't have vampires and other varied undead (we already have zombies as bonuses in core) AND an Eddie inspired undead character (ooh maybe a diorama with him at an organ:) ) I will definitely not be pleased. And I hope the ants are the size of ants like from THEM!, that was an awesome movie (Does anyone remember "IT came from the desert"?). Also, have they shown any mini's that are original concepts, or has everything been pretty much metal or limited edition re-releases?
  6. problem with terrain, they take up a lot of space quick.
  7. Now if the ants were "THEM" sized, I might be more excited.
  8. Sounds about what I was thinking on this "new" model. I already have an original saturn, so I am probably good. I think this is elegoo's new thing, make a few refinements/enhancements, then rebrand it as an "S" model (they did it with the neptune 2, though honestly it was 3 good enhancements I didn't feel comfortable doing to my OG 2's. But really, those add-ons were already out and should have been standard on the original).
  9. So, basically, the saturn S is just a bit bigger then a standard Saturn, has a replaceable carbon filter and is slightly faster? Man, right after I buy my saturn (okay,not really, I got it last year hehe), was just like my neptune 2's and now they have the S (which I have one hehe).
  10. I get most of my bases from my Patreons I sell and a few kickstarters I did like Caper gad's stuff, but I went in for $5 in case I see something I like:) Probably be more I like, but hopefully it will work like most Reaper PM's and I can add funds later:)
  11. If I decide to jump in next round, does anyone have a problem if my pack in's are all 3-D printed😆
  12. I kind of like them, and I guess I don't have much choice either since I am paid up too:)
  13. Thanks you two, this helps. Yah, I know 16GB is probably overkill, but man it's hard to find anything less than 16GB nowadays (well a GOOD memory card, the one's I found at 99 cent store are crap) The prices right now are so cheap for a 16GB, I am not too worried about wasted space:)
  14. So, quick question. What size USB stick can I use on the mars series of printers (well, saturn too)? I can get 16GB sticks for like $9 bucks (sandisk), will that work? Also, for those that have an FDM like a neptune 2, what size can those take? I can get 16GB for those too (also sandisk). Just want to make sure they'll work first.
  15. For me, most of my Patreons are for commercial use, only a few are personal (for now or until they offer a merchant tier): Loot Studios (not really a patreon but I like their stuff, hoping for a merchant tier soon) Epic Miniatures - personal right now, as their merchant is just above my limit Clay Cyanide - Merchant (got one of the last $20 tiers before they added a new higher tier) Hex3D - Personal/merchant. I love his stuff, been on a mug printing kick from him lately. Gotta show those off here soon Papsikels - Just moved to his new sci-fi merchant tier. I love what this group does, very cool stuff. RN Estudio- Also just moved to their merchant tier recently. Love all the cool themes they do. Great Grimoire - Merchant now as well, love her stuff Village's hope - Just got on to this merchant tiered patreon. Going to stay on next month then decide if I'll stay with them. There are others I jump off and on as they release cool stuff for a month, but these are all locked in for me (most, because I don't want to lose my merchant tier)
  16. So are these for December or the end of November? They announced that this first batch is available for download NOW? So, will they still be available in December? I'd hate to rush to get these in 2 days:(
  17. I pledged at the merchant level as usual:) I love Mia's work!
  18. I went in on the $1 pledge, good stuff here. Love the re-imagined Christmas stuff:)
  19. ah for the price, I may just jump on kraken's vault for the apprentice:) Maybe villages hope too:)
  20. Thanks, that helps! Woohoo, I get to highlight and comment now:)
  21. So I don't know if this has been asked before but if you get the superbacker tag on Kickstarter, do you have to continue pledging at that level to keep it? or does it stay forever? Just curious?
  22. I may have to jump on RAW's patreon this month:)
  23. If you need meddling teens, check out Thomas miller's Conundrum LLC over on MMF. Great set for Mystery Inc. stand ins.
